Head over to the The F-Word. Apparently half of Americans think a woman should be legally required to change her last name when she gets married. Because clearly the government needs to put a stop to us uppity bitches who might want to retain a sense of individuality despite getting a ring.

And yet it seems an overwhelming proportion of marriage jokes are about how limiting and miserable and prison-like marriage is for the man. WTF.

    I didn't change my name when I got married. My female friends who HAD changed their names were either angry with me or jealous of me. When I (stupidly) told one of them that my husband was actually considering changing his name to mine - she stopped speaking to me.

    It's an insanely hot topic.

    That's so ridiculous! What sort of "friend" would quit talking to you over that? Geez. You're not stupid for telling her that, she's stupid for over-reacting so much!
